December Classes At Laurelhurst Wine Merchants

Laurelhurst Wine Merchants (3711 NE 45th Street) behind Jak's) is having two interesting classes this month for wine enthusiasts.

Tomorrow evening a class called "Bubbles 101" takes place from 6:30-8pm for $45.

The description says:
Not all that sparkles is Champagne but what's the difference? This class will help you decode all of that as we explore the differences in flavor, production methods and labeling laws between Prosecco, Cava, Cremant, Champagne and other tasty bubblies. Even if you already know everything, this is a great excuse to taste some delicious wines just in time for the holidays.

And next Wednesday is the Sip and Swirl Tasting Group which meets the second Wednesday of every month at 6:30pm for $10.

The description says:
Are you completely mystified by those 'fruit bowl' descriptors of wine like blackberry and cherry? Oh wait, and then there's licorice, tar, graphite, pepper and a lot of other crazy things. What's all that got do with wine? The best way to demystify some of that and hone your own palate is to taste with others, so we're starting a once a month tasting group. This is not a class, it's just fun! We'll gather over a few bottles of wine with a common theme; we'll taste, share thoughts and ideas, and hopefully learn something along the way. We're low-key here at LWM so whether you're a newbie or a cork dork, you'll fit right in.

Reserve your seat for any classes by calling 206 708-1537 or emailing wine@laurelhurstwine.com.
